About Congress

The Australian Dental Congress brings together dentists, dental practitioners, and their staff from around Australia and across the world for discussion and education about the science, clinical practice and the profession and business of dentistry.

Staged by the Australian Dental Association, the Congress has been a regular feature on the calendar of the dental profession since 1907, providing attendees with the opportunity to discuss the scientific, technical and digital advances and developments that are changing the face of dentistry and will continue to do so into the future.

Anchored by a comprehensive scientific program that covers a diverse range of topics, and an accompanying roster of social events, Congress is a chance to enhance your knowledge and skills, build vitally important relationships with colleagues and to play a part in the advancement of the profession as a whole.
